Global Electronic Health Record Market is valued at approximately USD 27.2 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 5.0% over the forecast period 2020-2027. An electronic health record (EHR) is a system that records or store the patient’s health information in a digital format. EHR is becoming increasingly popular in the healthcare sector since this sector is moving on the way to the digitalization. EHR contains all the data associated with the patient’s medical history, such as diagnoses, medication, immunization dates, radiology images, allergies, treatment plans, and test results from laboratories. This system also enables access to evidence-based tools that are increasingly used by healthcare professionals to make quick and effective decisions about a patient’s treatment. EHRs have also assisted to simplify and automate the workflow in a healthcare establishment. This is likely to impel the demand for electronic health records all over the world. Increasing adoption of EHR among the hospitals, ambulatory care centers, and physicians along with the favorable government initiatives to adopt EHR are some are the few factors responsible for the CAGR of the market during the forecast period. For instance: the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act established in 2009, to motivate the execution of EHR. This act was intended at rising overall EHR utilization by providing government support to bridge the gap amongst the end-user and technology. Also, this act granted USD 27 billion to generate an incentive program aimed at endorsing the adoption of EHR among the hospitals and ambulatory care centers. This, in turn, is likely to leverage the market growth across the globe. Although, the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a rise in demand for EHR in identifying or monitoring the patient’s medical records, wherein hospitals have been used inpatient EHR to capture and manage the patient’s document. Therefore, this factor is positively influencing the demand for Electronic Health Record in the forthcoming year. However, the high implementation & maintenance cost of EHR is one of the major factors restraining the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
